    Located in the historic center of Amay, the collegiate church looks good and catches the eye with its imposing mass and three majestic towers.

    The building of Romanesque origin was built in the 11th century but underwent many transformations. The major works of the 18th century will give the church its current architectural aspect. The harsh nature of the origins has given way to a coherent and embellished profile.

    The church houses two Treasures recognised as part of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation's heritage: the superb Merovingian sarcophagus of sancta Chrodoara, which can be admired through a large glass opening in the choir, where it was discovered on 22 January 1977, and the shrine of Saint Ode, a masterpiece of 13th century Mosan goldsmithery.

    This church is classified as an exceptional heritage site in Wallonia. It was completely restored between 1998 and 2001.
